    The 'What did you do in your workshop tonight?' thread

    Agree with you if this is the new GSN my days are numbered. Cannot deal with this, sorry. Tried several different ways but the same result. Luckily I was about to start a build on the oversized Q500.

    Well made so progress got the fuselage jigged together no glue. Took quite a bit of work to get everything to fit nicely and tight. So got some minor things to fix. Then it will be glued together, hopefully I have not forgotten to do something.

    Scale Wendell Hostetler 30% PA-28 Cherokee Build

    Have to agree with you hinging is not my favourite job either. Like the way you drill all the wood first before you glue it to the flite surface, good idea and solution thanks for the tip.

    What do you use when sanding skins. Done more than my share of sanding and sanding wing skins and the dust gets to me. Up now all I used is 2 inch by 18 inch sanding blocks seems to give me the best results. Been thinking of trying one of the fancy 6inch Festool orbital sanders

    Yea could try it and check it frequently. You could do two layers one across the top and second from the bottom. I have used Mylar drawing sheet and it worked very well.

    The 'What did you do in your workshop tonight?' thread

    Thanks for that I have been thinking of building one with retractable gear. I like a Chipmunk but with the gear in the wing makes handling the wing a pain. So with retractable gear it’s easy to deal with and slide into a wing bags. Just have to thick of something for the fuselage so that it does...

    Scale Wendell Hostetler 30% PA-28 Cherokee Build

    Thanks for doing this. It is very informative and I am being educated on how to make a canopy which I have never done. Thanks. Why did you not make it from foam block and sand it to shape.

    Looks like the postman will be delivering a very short kit to me in the near future. So I will be trying to build an over sized Quickee 500 or I should say a Quickee 1000. Should be interesting to see how it flys and the performance.

    Look good and thanks for the info. The wing bags are done. Now it just a matter of time when my parts show up. This will give me something to do and keep me of the streets for a while.

    Scale Wendell Hostetler 30% PA-28 Cherokee Build

    That is nicely done. Can elaborate more on how you fastened the 8-32 rod to the tube. Did you glue some wood into the inside of the tube at that location.
